Dataloader uploads times

Two questions :

Is there a record limit per file when loading records in the dataloader?

What are the estimated times when performing insertion or updates , i mean if a have a 60.000 record file how much time it will take ?

As always thanks
There is no limit to the number of records that the loader can load. I've seen files of millions (although those are rare).

As for the speed, it is all relative. Which object, how many columns are in your file, the sharing (public, private) of your org, and which operation you are performing all play a factor in the amount of time it takes per record.

In general, I usually see between 15,000 to 50,000 records an hour. But it all depends.
